Once A Sinner Now A Winner

The price He paid for me 
was more than precious,
a gift of grace so golden 
and glorious.
A sinless substitude for a 
soul soiled and sinful,
Oh what a leverage for a 
loser that was lawful!

I was in bondage for my 
baseless bargains,
my cheap choices led me 
into cheerless chains.
He crushed the cage, I am 
more than conquerors,
Oh the endless evasion of 
my enormous errors!

I was a weary worm in a 
world so worthless,
wielding His word, I have 
worth for my weakness. 
He saved me from the 
stigma of being a sinner.
and wooed me to His ways, 
I am now a winner.
